The Address Book

Author(s): Jane Clifton


Performer Jane Clifton - child of an English army officer and a very badly behaved daughter of the British Raj - grew up perpetually on the move as the family followed her father's postings around the world. Eventually the Cliftons reached Melbourne. It was the wild Sixties and Jane was in the thick of it - anti-war demos, women's lib protests, experimental theatre groups and rock and roll. She carried on the family's roving tradition, changing addresses without so much as a backward glance. But when her parents both died tragically young, leaving so much unsaid, she began to wonder: where exactly is home? Is it your family? Your memories? Or simply bricks and mortar? What if, one day, you went back to every house you'd ever lived in, to try to find out?
